Before and After - Vicki's Wingback Chair

During a particularly good shopping weekend in July, I reported on a number of chairs I purchased at one of Vicki's Estate Sales (one of my favorite local estate sale coordinators/sellers).  The chairs I picked up had good bones  - my go-to list of features includes:

  • hand-tied eight-way coil springs in the foundation
  • solidly constructed woodwork in good shape - no breaks or bad scarring
  • handsome, classic styling and proportions (not oversized or clunky)
I had found just such pieces and they have now been refurbished with great results - here is one that is particularly tall and believed to be a Hickory Chair (great North Carolina manufacturer).   The chair was custom reupholstered in a heavy pale gold on gold (tone on tone) woven cotton blend fabric with a less traditional look and texture.
